Recommended Rare Qualities To Have

PP Pouch

PP Pouch

This Rare Quality can be very convenient as it has a chance to restore PP of a learned move every time an enemy is defeated. You will be able to sustain longer dungeon crawls with this Rare Quality.

XP Boost

XP Boost increases the experience points you receive when defeating an enemy in the dungeon or after a boss fight. This also spreads to Pokemon in your Rescue Camps so they get a share of the experience!

Friendly Or Squad Up

These Rare Qualities will make it easier & highly likely for you to recruit Pokemon once you've defeated them in the dungeon. This can be especially important if you're underleveled and just started a dungeon.

Food Finder

Tiny Apple

This Rare Quality will make it more likely for you to find Tiny Apples in the dungeon as items on the floor. These Apples restore very little hunger, but if paired with another quality, Small Stomach, can fully restore your hunger! They can also be given to fainted Pokemon to recruit them.
